A glorious 27c today. Unfortunately the UV was in the extreme range and my face and neck are crispy red now.

0 °F.

Did I sign up for the Antarctic Survey when I wasn't looking?

Was warmer today a bit. 35F currently, expected to be 30F overnight.

Snow tomorrow possibly.

Snow amount 2 to 4 cm. Windy. Temperature steady near zero except high minus 3 near Hope.

Night Snow. Amount 5 to 10 cm. Windy. Temperature steady near minus 1 except near minus 4 near Hope.


I am thinking it's time to go back to San Diego...lol... Tomorrow they expect to be a nice comfortable 73F for the high, 57F overnight.

Left work last night and it was snowing.

Warm enough to walk the kids to school today.

Saying that, since then, the temp has doubled to 16F. Wind chill was a bit interesting though. Still, it was 0F yesterday before the wind. I did drive them yesterday.

I saw the 5 day on the news this morning and thought I'd slept until mid-February for a while. 45 today, with sporadic 40s throughout an otherwise not that cold week. Rain in the forecast in early January? I'll take that any day.

Every day it's doing this, it's not doing the other thing. Net gain.

Yes, I agree.

What snow we did get yesterday though managed to be an absolute pain in the arse.

My poor little town is flooding badly right now

We're fine, being well away from the flood zone, but the whole downtown area is under water.

On the positive side, the reservoir levels are looking good...

32C today, beautiful, gazing up into a perfect blue sky whilst floating around in the pool.

40s again today. Grey and wet. November weather

Might get an ice storm tonight and snow at the weekend but then it'll be back into the 40s again on Monday. That's about 20 degrees warmer than the average, can't really ask for more.

Of course, when it inevitably drops to -20, it'll feel that bit worse as a result
